The image shared by Mahindra also demonstrates that despite correct punctuation, the English language is occasionally susceptible to interpretation.

Anand Mahindra never fails to entertain internet users with his tweets. The chairperson of Mahindra & Mahindra recently took to Twitter to share an image with text that made the internet laugh out loud. The image posted by Mahindra read, “The guy at the furniture store told me the sofa would seat 5 people without any problems. Then it occurred to me, I don’t think I know 5 people without any problems.” The lines perfectly depict the complex and confusing nature of the English language.

“So true. And I think the English language is remarkable. It’s as malleable as clay. Now I don’t think I’ll ever be able to use the phrase ‘without any problems’ again in place of easily’,” Mahindra wrote while taking a dig at the confusing nature of the English language.

“Meanwhile all my childhood I was told that “I am not good at English”,” joked a third.
